It's not just premium lagers that can be reassuringly expensive. The Moulton RG tops out at £5500. But this isn't a stunt: 20+ bikes will likely to be sold to the fiercely loyal clan of Moulton enthusiasts.

The RG is based on the existing spaceframe construction with a 'pylon' seat support but has been specced with drop handlebars, a double chainset, a new hydralastic suspension unit on the rear and carbon-fibre forks.

It also benefits from a full width rear hub and Dr. Schoch paintwork which looks like the standard Moulton 'colour' but flares metalised purple in bright sunlight.

Dr Alex Moulton - present at the first day of ICC - has designed a cute little gizmo to accomodate the straight push front derailleur.

Dr Moulton told bikebiz.co.uk that the RG model is the bike equivalent of a Mini Cooper:

"Richard has produced a hotted-up version of my bike. Beautiful isn't it?"
